You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Here is a suggestion: GET USED TO IT.
I just find the system unbalanced. Considering how low the standards to get a HS diploma are, the standards for getting admitted to and paying for college in the US are strangely high.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I think college education should be free, but I just want to make a comment about how even in a selfish way, college education helps the taxpayers.
Even if we all have to pay more taxes for benefits for college students to go to college, the benefit of that commonly helps everyone in society much more then it costs in taxes.
You will benefit from free college for adults by having more educated voters, more productive citizens that can consume more of your products, and you benefit from your company having closer intermediate industries with a domestic educated workforce instead of having them overseas.
For instance, rubber and glass plant boomed around Detroit when Detriot had large car production. If you work as a car salesman, you will benefit from having more educated engineers in America to produce cars for you to sell.
Also, people don't like to see the homeless around... and free education for adults reduces this.
I am not saying that it is always worth it for the individual to pay for others to go to college, but without a doubt the system overall benefits us.
